My little turd!

We took him to the vet a couple of weeks ago, for his normal checkup. At that time, he had a musty smell to him. She did his anal glands, and was surprised to find that they were full. He was 9 weeks old then. Two weeks later (as of today), he has smelled of pennies or metal twice now. This includes today. It is horrible! My question is this: Is this the cause of his anal glands? I see a couple of drops sometimes when he poops outside. Sometimes he licks his bottom, other times he drags. Is this normal for a puppy of this age? I also heard the more you secrete the glands for them, the more often they produce.
